I don't get the joke about if you see a mosquito at Charlie Sheen's house you should run away?
Ok, I think this has to do with Charlie Sheen revealing that he is HIV positive. Ok, I know mosquito's suck blood. But otherwise, why would I, as a visitor to his house, be afraid if I saw a mosquito. Is it because the mosquito could then bite me and therefore transfer the virus to me? Is that the joke? I don't think HIV can be transmitted that way? I don't think this joke is very funny. Thank you!

This is also a bit personal: During the mid 80s a neighbor on the street I grew up on, contracted HIV and eventually succumb to AIDS. A mother (who was known as the gossip queen on the street) warned her children not to venture near his house for fear that mosquitoes that may have sucked his blood and would infect the kids if they happened to be near that home
